2018 marks the 33rd year that Littleton Rotary has sponsored its annual Golf Tournament. In partnership with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Dept. and South Suburban Parks & Recreation District, the fundraising event benefits community-wide programs designed to promote wellness to families, and fight childhood obesity.
 
Additionally, the tournament will benefit the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Employee Benefit Fund and the Littleton Rotary Foundation, the funding arm of the Rotary Club of Littleton. Founded in 1968, the Littleton Rotary Foundation’s mission is to support community projects in the greater Littleton area that address critical and ongoing community needs.
The days and years fly by and we cannot let them pass without saying thank you to one of our stalwarts, Dr. Merl (Doc) Jacobsen.  For his decades of service in his vocation as well as in Rotary he has received the Service Above Self Lifetime Honorary Membership in the Rotary Club of Littleton.
 
Newer members will not have known Doc when he was club President, 1982-83, or when he led the significant Project C.U.R.E Capital Campaign to purchase their world headquarters and warehouse.

Club President Belinda "B" Bianchi presents Douglas County Deputy Sheriff Michael Doyle with Vocational Service Award.
The members of the Rotary Club of Littleton gathered at a recent special evening meeting to honor a member of the Douglas County Sheriff's Department, Deputy Michael Doyle. On December 31, 2017, Michael and four other deputies were first responders to a 911 domestic violence call. The results were tragic for all involved.

During a PTO meeting back in 2012 at Centennial Academy of Fine Arts Education (formerly known as Centennial Elementary), concern was raised about the growing number of students whose only regular meals were those lunches provided by the school. Many of those students had very little food over the weekends and started the school week famished.
On the second Monday of each month, Littleton Rotary members volunteer at Project C.U.R.E. headquarters sorting donated new and surplus medical items. Those items are then boxed, palletised, and readied for shipment to clinics and hospitals in some of the world’s most critical areas. Teams of highly trained Project C.U.R.E. specialists travel to areas of need and do on-site evaluations. Once the evaluation of needs are completed, Project C.U.R.E. works to prepare the shipment and secures funding for transport.
Littleton Rotary spearheaded the fundraising effort that ultimately lead to the purchase of Project C.U.R.E’s. world headquarters located in Centennial, CO.
